I needed my students to create individual comic strips about the Bill of Rights. Pixton had the perfect image library. And it was easy to use!

This was a different format than the norm for the students to convey their knowledge on a subject. The students enjoyed working in this medium. I really liked that the students could log in at home.

We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!

Extremely useful as part of a New Technology in Science project. Students visited various museums/educational centres, recorded their experiences through video cameras and microphones. These images were them used with Pixton to produce comics.

Great experience with creativity and expressing ideas in static comic form. It was great to share each work with other classmates and be able to print to take home. I see many uses for Pixton in my classroom and in my school.

Pixton enabled my students to present their understandings of environmental issues in creative and exciting ways. Students were engaged throughout the process and the functionality was simple but also enabled detailed customisation for those students that wanted to extend themselves.

My students created a graphic novel. I had them use the theme from Metamorphosis by Kafka and make his message in a setting and story relevant to today's teens. They were required to use symbolism, motifs, and other literary elements. Using comics made the application of literature fun and exciting!

All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.
